The trial for former Louisville Police officer Brett Hankinson has been set for 2022 after being delayed.
According to NBC News, the trial has been pushed back to February 1, nearly six months later than the original court date of August 31. The new date was announced Friday by Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Ann Bailey Smith.
Hankison was accused of firing his gun into a civilian’s home, who lived next to Taylor, during the incident. He pleaded not guilty to three counts of wanton endangerment.
Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove, who were also involved in the shooting that stemmed from a no-knock warrant, were not charged.
All three of the officers were fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department.
On Monday, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced a federal investigation into the policies and practices of the department.
Taylor’s family received a $12 million settlement from the city of Louisville in September.
